=== Roadmap for third release ==========================================

* Check if doc is up-to-date

* DONE checkout frais, compilation (local ou non) et make bench chaque nuit sur moloch
  (?)

* DONE IDE: reload
  (claude)

* DONE BD : se passer de sqlite3
  (Claude)
  Solution: un unique fichier XML, qui est ecrit mais pas
  tres souvent (pas plus d'une fois par seconde)
  ne pas oublier neanmoins de mettre une action dans Timeout
  qui enregistre au bout d'un moment
  pb: n'est pas independant de l'IDE, peut-on faire un module
  independant de l'IDE ? qui serait utilisé par why3bench ?

* DONE IDE: avoir des transformations non codees en dur
  (Claude d'abord)

* DONE Bug des md5
  (Claude. pas reproductible ? Pb de duplication des buts ?)

----------------------- Why-discuss list ---------------------------

We are happy to announce the first public release of Why3, also known
as the Why platform next generation. It is a new project, independent

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
192

194
195

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap

196
197
198
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking

199
* inductive definitions of predicates

2) More generic handling of goals and lemmas to prove

* concept of proof task
* generic concept of task transformation
* generic approach for communicating with external provers

Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap    
Andrei Paskevich committed
209
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
210
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar

211

213
214
215
216

4) GUI with new features w.r.t. the former GWhy

* session save and restore
* prover calls in parallel
* splitting, and more generally applying task transformations, on demand
217
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

* users can define new transformations
* users can add connections to additional provers

226
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
227
228

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage

  and intentionally undocumented in the current documentation (the input
  syntax for programs may change a lot in the future).
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
231
232
233
234

* There is no front-end for other languages like C or Java. However,
  the last release Why 2.28 is able to use Why3 as a back-end

Notice that Why3 is expected to replace Why2 in the future. As such,
it is the project where improvements and new features will be
implemented. As this is the first public release of Why3, it is likely
that missing features, and possibly bugs, will raise soon. Please
report those in the bug tracker, we will do our best to fix them and
provide new releases in a short time.

--------------------- Frama-C list ----------------------------


The first release of Why3, also known as the Why platform next
generation, is publicly available. Why3 is a new project, independent
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
251
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.

The Jessie plugin of the Why release 2.28 has the ability to use Why3
as back-end. You must install both Why 2.28 and Why3 for this to work.

Using the Why3 GUI on a C file is done as follows
  frama-c -jessie -jessie-atp why3ide <file>.c
(You can also run it in batch mode using
  frama-c -jessie -jessie-atp why3 <file>.c
260
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"

MARCHE Claude committed

with Why3 batch tools).

The main new features of interest in the GUI are

* new provers available
* calling provers in parallel
* splitting on demand
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
268
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
269
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
270
  not proved automatically.

* proof session saved and restored at startup

Any question, remark or bug report concerning only Why3 should be done
using the Why3 public discussion list and bug tracker.
